There are no current RPMs for GCC to my knowledge.  The last ones I made nearly
two years ago and gave up on shortly thereafter because EGCS was much superior.

What bug in EGCS is so terrible that you are considering this move?
Which version of EGCS have you tried?

There will be EGCS-1.1.2 in the very near future which has many PowerPC problems
fixed, perhaps you can wait.
